West Nile Virus-Marshall

People across East Texas need to be aware of a potential health problem -- West Nile Virus. Another bird had tested positive. The Blue Jay was found in the eastern area of Marshall.

Infected birds have also been found in Lufkin, Carthage, and Tyler this summer. They get it from infected Mosquitoes.

If you find a dead bird, do not touch it with your bare hands. Pick it up with gloves, put it in a trash bag, and call your local health department.
